Who We Are


Corcraft is the marketplace name for the New York State Department of Correctional Services, Division of Industries. We are a full-fledged division of a state agency that operates as a program, but models finances and operations like a business. All revenues are returned to the General Fund of New York State. Corcraft's mission is to employ inmates in real work situations producing quality goods and services at competitive prices, delivered on time as required by the State of New York and its subsidiaries at no cost to the taxpayer.

Corcraft supports the overall Department of Correctional Services mission four ways:
1. Keeps inmates employed to help prevent disruption
2. Helps offset the cost of incarceration
3. Teaches work disciplines and job skills
4. Helps address taxpayer expectations that inmates do something productive while incarcerated.

Who are our customers and how do we sell.

By law, Corcraft can only sell to government agencies (including other states) at the state and local levels; schools and universities, courts and police departments, and certain nonprofits.

Corcraft is designated a "preferred source" by New York State Law. Section 162 of the State Finance Law confers "preferred status" upon commodities produced by the Department of Correctional Services, Correctional Industries Program (Corcraft), thereby exempting purchases from Corcraft from the competitive procurement provisions of Section 163 of this article and from other competitive procurement statues. Customers can buy directly from Corcraft without having to go through a time-consuming bid process.
